Former Browns LT Joe Thomas Joins List of 28 Semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame

Former Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas could be in the Hall of Fame before you know it.

Cleveland Browns could soon have their 18th member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Longtime left tackle Joe Thomas was one of 28 people named as a semifinalist for the 2023 Pro Football Hall of Fame Class.

Thomas started every game for 10 years straight for the Browns from 2007-2016. An unfortunate injury cut Thomas's season short in 2017 before he eventually retired. The former Cleveland Browns left tackle was a six-time All-Pro, as well as a 10-time Pro Bowl recipient.
